Welcome to the new Mr Cup and Graphic exchange

posted in Mr CUP News  at 5.00 PM from Ubud, Bali / Indonesia listening Ben Harper
So, it is now 00h00 in Bali, and we are the 12 november ! After almost 1 year I get the idea of "Mr-Cup" here it comes, the site is online. A big thanks to Mathieu for his help and for not getting crazy each time I change my mind... Graphic exchange is still my blog, it is now integrated to a bigger project to have everything on the same site.

THE blog

So, after 6 years and half, the new Graphic exchange is here... It has all what was missing on the old version : social links, comments, direct links...
 
I also introduce a lot of new sections that need to be fill. We have repost all the articles done since july, all the others ones, thousand and thousand ones done since june 2006 can be found in the archives here.
 
As you can see, there is also sponsors now. After years doing the blog without it, it was time to bring them in. But I do not want this to be random adverts, I want to select only products and brands that fit with the spirit of this blog. I hope this will help me to dedicate even more time to post and help me to continue to visit studio and share about creativity. If you want to receive the media kit, just contact me at contact(a)mr-cup.com or use the contact page.
 
A new section is the EVENTS, that I hope will grow in time. I post some for now, but if you have more, you just can submit them using this form. Event submission is free until 2013, then a small contribution will be asked.
 
That said, I wait for your feedback, and if you see some bugs, please write me or leave a comment... Enjoy life ! (I do).

Olivier Guirault

posted in Mr CUP News  at 10.46 PM from Ubud, Bali
As I am working on mr-cup.com, it will also includes an updated version of my portfolio. Among new projects, are this picture of my artist friend Olivier Guirault. I love his work, and sadly he is not a "web" guy, so I HAVE the show his work... My aim is to inspires you, as much as he inspires me... His also the owner (and seller now) of the house I present here and design a web site for.

When we shot the picture of him drawing (last year, as you can see the christmas tree on the back), we have a great time listening to an old Genesis album... I send a free wood letter if you guess which album it was...

mrcup wood helvetica
 

I am really please to show you the pictures of the Helvetica Wood letters in their final packaging, sillscreen fabric bags... As there are 2 collection, one in suar wood, the other in recycled color teck wood, both bags are differents too... All the recycled collection letters have different colors, I will show you more soon.

www.mr-cup.com will be launch on november 12th, this is the date we fixed with my developer... So, it will be on 12.11.12... It will present new projects in my portfolio, new stickers in the shop, and a new blog... with ads... yes, but not usual ads... I want them to be more a complement of the content of the blog, and if it can help me to visit more studios to do special post, I had too... And the wood letters will be on sell too, of course...

So for all who asked, no letterpress calendar this year... Sorry but it was fun to do the 2 issues, but my life is different now, and I want to focus on new things...

La maison près de l'église / A village house near the church

La maison près de l'église / A village house near the church
 
Remember our friends' great house we stayed in last august ? While we where there we get a nice talk with Olivier and Caroline, the owner of the house... after a good lunch, sharing some french wine, I talked about the power of internet now, how it brings to me (I could not live in Bali without it) and told them they should try to sell the house with a nice web site...
 
I propose them to design it, and they would pay me only if the house is sold... A kind of real estate designer ! This idea was very challanging and motivate Frédérique, my wife, and I to took the pictures of the house, to express in images what we feel when we werre in this magical place...
 
The site has been launch today at www.maisonavendre-gard.com
 
Of course, we need help to write the end of the story, by sharing this to found the new owner... If you want to talk about this, check this press page to get access to all the images : www.maisonavendre-gard.com/press
